Med Supply Drive with Adaah & Zuby
Med Supply Drive is an initative started by a group of Georgetown students to get medical professionals the supplies they need. Today we talk with Adaah and Zuby about the recently started org, how they are handling scaling, and how the Covid19 has impacted organizing, their med school, and families.
